The homeowner suddenly found he had rotten-egg odor from his hot water. A water quality specialist suggested that he remove the sacrificial anode. It worked. Unfortunately, it also voided the warranty on the water heater and shortened its life.

You can, but it's dangerous. You can buy sma ll 110 testers that will tell you if the powers on. It sounds as if you should take a basic couse first. It could save you both a shock and burning out equipment.Can you change the thermostat on an electric water heater without turning the breaker off? No one should have to deal with water that's too hot or too cold. If you are experiencing either of these thermostat-related issues, contact a water heater pro today to get everything back on an even keel. About the Author If the inlet is fed directly from the main with nopressure relief valves or check valves between them then when the waterheater heats it expands and simplyflows back toward the main.

Visit the web site to learn more about ">Energy Efficient Water Heaters Which metal is which is determined by where they are on the galvanic scale, also known as the galvanic series. For instance, most plumbers know better than to screw a steel fitting into a copper fitting because the steel will immediately start to rust. It is less "noble" than copper. The metal being protected is the cathode. The metal being consumed is the anode. They can cool a room 3 to 5°F, reducing comfort during the heating season.

The flow rate for each of your plumbing fixtures is measured in GPMs (gallons per minute). Calculating the hot water demands for your entire home will not only help you choose the right size for your new water heater; it will also let you know which applications have high GPMs. Replacing old fixtures and faucets with ones that have a lower GPM number will help you conserve water. Upgrading your entire system also ensures that your new high-efficiency water heater performs at optimal levels. Tankless Water Heaters

Newer tankless water heaters are highly efficient, 92% and more and therefore their exhaust temperature is very low, about 120 F. They can be vented with PVC instead of stainless steel models that have a 300 F exhaust temperature. A properly installed tankless vent is sloped towards the unit and any condensate fluid would flow back into the tankless unit and is then neutralized and drained and is not collected in the galvanized sheet metal vent. Here again the requirement for a separate venting for the tankless drives up the installation cost. Turn water on, go shut off that sink faucet you turned on earlier so the water lines can pressurize, and you can verify you don’t have any leaks. Improperly insulated pipes Dirty gas burner or burnt out thermocouple

You must protect your water heater in case of an earthquake by placing seismic bracing on the tank. The bracing must be two 20-gauge sheet metal straps. One strap must be on the upper third of the tank and the other on the lower third of the tank. Approved seismic bracing kits for water heaters are available at many retail outlets. Also, check the anode rod—sometimes called the sacrificial rod—every three years. An aluminum or magnesium probe inside the tank, it collects corrosive elements and should be replaced when caked or eaten away. A new one costs about $30. Heat pump water heaters pull hot air from the surrounding area and use itto heat the water. The unit will then exhaust cool air back intothe room, unless its vented outside. Air Shut Off System

Always make sure the service engineer is trained in new energy competence models so your water heater can be revamped to its original complaint and remain to save you money. Consistent maintenance on the water heater is significant to ensure it continues to function correctly and will not need heater repair.

On a cloudy winter day don't expect to notice too much of an effect from a solar pool cover. Likewise, on a hot and clear summer day their total effect will be much more noticeable. Using a larger open end wrench, loosen and remove the main burner tube nut that holds the main burner tube in the bottom of the main gas valve.
